Lovely boat - seems very new, plenty of space, super friendly staff and nice lunch. I did have my reservations when I was assigned passenger number 130 and assigned a particular seat on the boat - but seating was for initial safety briefing only and then we had plenty of freedom to roam around. All very professional and well organised.

Everything was just perfect! Boat crew was so helpful, funny and smiling all the time, they made our cruise unforgetable! Lunch was so nice and we could choose from a large variety of food. The wine at the end was just a cherry on top. Nothing to complain. Thank you so much!

We had such a great day out! The crew were fantastic and very friendly, loved that they had travelcalm tablets available for purchase (we needed them on the way out!) Lunch was good. The 2 reef stops, what can I say, AMAZING! They also had a photographer diving who took absolutely stunning shots with us and the turtles and Wally (giant fish) at very reasonable prices. We had THE BEST day! Thankyou so much
